Replacement License & Tag
When renewing your pet license, you will receive a new tag - to be placed on your pet’s collar - for the up-coming year. If your pet loses the tag during the year, just mail your name, mailing address, pet license tag number (if available), daytime phone number, and a check for $10 to the Licensing Division address above. We will send you a new pet license tag.

Transfer of License
If you have just moved to Snohomish County within the past 30 days and your pet was previously licensed with a government agency, you qualify to pay the replacement tag fee. Mail a completed pet application form, a copy of your current license from the other jurisdiction, proof of spay / neuter, if applicable, and a check for $10 to the Licensing Division address above. We will send you a Snohomish County pet license tag.
